The Lovereading4Kids comment
Capturing the rich and varied mythology and history of Wales and reflecting how it has been shaped by its mountainous landscape, these stories encompass the legends of the Arthurian era as well as the enchantment of imaginary fairy folk. Gwyn Jones’s lyrical retellings capture the lilt of the Welsh language as they describe the power struggles of a bygone time and the beauty of a specific landscape.

Stories From Wales by Gwyn Jones
Oxford Children's Myths and Legends bring you the greatest stories ever told, from around the world and long ago. Heroes and villains, witches and wizards, warriors and royalty - there's something here for everyone. These spell-binding tales of love, loyalty, greed and jealousy come from the mountains and valleys of Wales.
From Pwyll, the prince of Dyfed, to Arthur's court, they tell of a world where peasants and kings live alongside the folk of the faery, and where reality and enchantment intertwine.
